Item 269 - WWII US M1 Fixed Bail Helmet with Bullet Strike Catalog 543 (Jan 2019)

Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $2,336.25 (includes buyer's premium)


An early World War II front seam 'Steel Pot' US M1 helmet with fixed chinstrap bails, with prominent bullet entry and exit holes. The helmet retains about 90-95% of both the original olive drab, flocked paint finish, as well as some theater-added camouflage consisting of large, jigsaw-shaped areas of tan paint. There is typical flaking along the rim, and both a prominent bullet entry hole almost dead center at the front of the crown, and exit hole on the left side just above the rim. The bullet entered from above and to the right of the wearer, passing through the Westinghouse Electric Co. liner, partially obscuring the painted US Army Armored unit badge, but inflicted only some superficial damage to the inner suspension webbing. This is a fantastic, bullet-struck wartime M1 helmet with unit marked liner.
